Let me start off by saying that animal portraiture is a lot harder than it looks. We knew this from the many hours we spent "dog stalking" back home at some of Johannesburg's many parks. Anyone remember @PixelPaws on Instagram? Yes, that was our first "shot" at moving-target photography. We literally have thousands of dog portraits on our hard drive, so we should look at sharing more of those...

But right now, here are a few close up "mugshots" of some of the friends we made along the way.
